Caring for special places

Caring for special places is at the heart of the National Trust's work in the north west. We look after some of Britain's most cherished spaces, 365 days of every year. But to keep those places special, for ever, for everyone, we need your help. Your donations are essential to ensure that our wildlife and historic buildings can be enjoyed by generations to come.

Have you ever triumphed at summiting a Lakeland hill, only to be dismayed at the eroded descent path before you on the other side? Erosion is not a new problem but we can make a difference.

Supporter groups

We have 17 supporter groups in the north west who regularly contribute to our appeals. Joining your local group is a great way to meet like-minded people and enjoy lots of different social activities, all while supporting our work.
